‘An Bollenessor’ means ‘the rock pool hunter’ in the Cornish language. In this blog, I will post about marine life in Cornwall: rock pooling, beach combing, snorkeling, diving, ‘pontooning‘, and keeping local organisms in my aquarium. I try to take care in identifying species using resources such as aphotomarine (see the links page for a list of useful sites and books) but I will be wrong in some cases. If you have specific interests, you can click on one of the Categories at the bottom of the home page. These are pretty self explanatory, e.g. diving, rock pooling, seaweeds, fish or aquarium update. For more specific topics of interest click the Tags under the blog post header. Most photo’s above water are taken with my iPhone 4S (with an olloclip lens for macro pics), older underwater photo’s are taken with a Canon Powershot D30 or Panasonic Lumix and newer underwater photo’s with a Canon G16.
